The film follows the life of Asahina-Kun, a part-time worker who used to dream of becoming an actor. One day he meets a woman named Maya Yamada and starts a friendship with her.
However, she is married and has a cute daughter.

Reminiscent of Zawa Zawa Shimokitazawa (2000), this flick is also a kind of love story set in a bohemian section of Tokyo with a sly, offbeat atmosphere. Directed by ShoichiKato, and based on the novel by Eichi Nakata, the work follows the life of Asahina (Renn Kiriyama from the Kamen Rider TV series), a freeta twenty-something. Asahina is the shy and sensitive type who has an affinity for the arts (fiction, theater and film). One day in a café he’s caught in a random fight between a couple he doesn’t know, so the waitress, Maya (Mari Hoshino), comes to his aid. Previously smitten, he starts a friendship with her and a fortuitous further meeting leads them to start hanging out. Maya, however, is married with a three-year-old daughter and takes it all as platonic fun. Or does she?
